How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.


With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.


But if your teen is ready to take the plunge the first thing they need to figure out is how to build a resume that stands out even if they don’t have any work experience.

Time to BoostUp! Why We Must Reinforce at Home the Importance of Consistent School Attendance


Nearly 7.5 Million U.S. Students are Chronically Absent, Missing 18 or More Days of School Each Year


Nearly 7.5 million students (K – 12th grade) are chronically absent every school year – missing enough school to put them at severe risk of dropping out or failing to graduate. Chronic absenteeism, which is defined as missing at least 10 percent of school days in a given year, or about 18 days, affects the educational outcomes of millions of students. 

Every absence, in any grade – excused or not – can impact a child’s academic achievement. As early as 6th grade, missing 18 or more days of school in a year puts a child’s high school graduation at-risk. Missing just two days every month of the school year can allow a child to fall behind, increasing the likelihood of dropping out.

Research shows that students who attend school regularly in their early school years are more likely to learn to read well by the critical third grade milestone, score higher on standardized tests, and graduate and go on to college than students who are chronically absent. Education is crucial to breaking the cycle of poverty, however chronic absenteeism is most prevalent among low-income students. Regular attendance in lower grades is just as important as it is in later years to ensure that a student stays on the path toward graduation.
